The Interactions of Fiscal and Monetary Policies in Macroeconomic Dynamics
This lecture series offers an overview of the recent developments in the New Keynesian approach to macroeconomics. The aim is to provide students with the insights of the New Keynesian models, some of which have overturned the conventional understandings of how various factors influence macroeconomic dynamics. A key focus of the discussion will be on the interactions of fiscal and monetary policies in shaping macroeconomic dynamics. The overview is also meant to familiarize students with potential areas of research in this field.
